The curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England and modified to meet the needs of the international student population. With this in mind, most of the schools run the UK curriculum up to IGCSE and then culminate in the IB Diploma Programme. The curriculum is further enhanced through a wide range of co-curricular activities and enrichment programmes, such as World Classroom and China Classroom, and students are encouraged to participate in a variety of clubs, sports and athletic competitions. Most importantly, students gain a deep understanding of and respect for cultural diversity, keen awareness of global issues, and develop a lifelong commitment to meeting the challenges of their generation.

What is it like to work there?
Over the past four years, we have placed over 100 happy teachers in YCEF schools in Hong Kong and China and their feedback has been resoundingly positive. The schools look after their staff very well from start to finish, and they all provide a competitive salary, private healthcare, accommodation, and a yearly flight allowance. What’s not to love?

Where are the schools?
The variety of cities you can go to via YCEF is one of the reasons many people choose these schools. Of course, some are in major cities like Shanghai and Beijing. However there is also a school, for example, in the city of Qingdao, which is different than many cities in China, it’s on the coast and will challenge any stereotype about a “city in China” you have. This video shows some of the different experiences you would have living here.
